Sometimes it is about the tennis

Among my favorite annual rituals is attending the U.S. Open (tennis) on Labor Day weekend with SeanEric, and ElizabethTricia is invited but declines. Some of my New York friends have even gone along when we had a spare ticket or two.

If you follow my posts here and on Facebook, which I know everyone does faithfully, you know my mantra: “It is never just about the tennis.”

Yesterday in Melbourne:
Wang Qiang defeated Serena Williams.
Coco Gauff defeated Naomi Osaka.
Ons Jabuer defeated Caroline Wozniaki in Wozniaki’s final match before retiring due to health reasons.

Sometimes, my friends, it is about the tennis.

Forever champion

Simona Halep won Wimbledon this year.

Serena Williams will forever be my champion.

The day I stop fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me will be the day I am in my grave.
– Serena Williams

Long will she reign.
